Heres a Great Q & A With this Amazing Author. Be sure to check out her facebook page at http:/www.facebook.com/margarita.felices

 

Q: Tell us something about yourself, where you’re based, and how you came to be a writer?

A: I live in Cardiff. For all its modernisation, there are still remnants of old Victorian Cardiff. I love the castle in the centre of the city and the fact that you have the sea on one side and the mountains on the other side of Cardiff.  I couldn’t imagine living anywhere else.   I’ve always loved to write.  My teachers at school used to limit me to no more than ten pages.  I wrote short stories for magazines, it paid my way through college.

 

Q: What genre do you generally write and have you considered other genres?

A: Supernatural stories, they are fun and you can let your imagination run riot.  I wrote a romantic story once as a screenplay.  I might re-write it as a novel one day, I liked the story.

Q: What have you had published to-date? Do you have a favourite of your books or characters?

A: My first novel Judgement of Souls has just been published as an eBook by www.bookstogonow.com and is available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Goodreads.  I love Rachel, my main character – she’s strong and independent, but I do admit to having a soft spot for Daniel, the club owner.  I had a few short stories published in a few women’s magazines some years ago. I didn’t keep copies of the magazines but I do have the stories saved.  I re-wrote one of them recently and sent it to BTGN as a short story

Q: Have you had any rejections? If so, how do you deal with them?

A:  Lots and lots. Before I met Jenni at Bookstogonow, I sent the novel off to several agents in the UK and US.  Rejection is all part of the profession, it’s tough each time you get a letter, but you have to put up with it because one day, you’ll get accepted. What isn’t easy is getting a rejection from a publisher who couldn’t be bothered to write you a letter back, just scribbled no thanks at the bottom of your letter! That’s harsh.

Q: Have you won or been shortlisted in any competitions and do you think they help with a writer’s success?

A: They do inspire confidence.   I did come runner-up in a script writing competition, but nothing came from it.  But at least I’d been noticed!
